Google This was inevitable. AdMob founder and CEO Omar Hamoui has responded to Apple blocking AdMob from the iOS ecosystem. Unsurprisingly, Hamoui isn't particularly amused, claiming that not only is it bad for competition, it will also hurt developers and users alike.

I want a plug-in system for Google Search where I can choose my favorite ad provider!
Not offering that is obviously abuse of Google's search monopoly to drive ad monopoly just like when MS bundled IE without offering alternatives!

You are totally wrong there because google search is a free tool and they have to make money somewhere... but users PAY for the iphone and the os inside, so... why should apple decide where could the devs get their money for their free apps?

Apple has always decided how devs can make money on the app store. In fact, Apple still provides more options than any other store.

Not sure how you can even question why Apple should be the one determining how devs can make money in Apple's sandbox.
